Many Singaporeans will be looking forward to the end of this week as it is a long weekend public holiday. Many would also take a day or two of annual leave so that they can go for a short holiday away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Recently, The Straits Time had a short write up suggesting how people can plan ahead with their annual leave so that they can enjoy  a series of long weekends with minimal leaves application.  By the way, the “way to maximise your annual leave” for Year 2009 is out too if you have missed that one. Kiasu syndrome?? Perhaps. Well, life is always about plans isn’t it? We make plans for our kids, plans about securing that dream job, plans for tomorrow’s dinner when we have not even had todays. However, many I think have neglected the plan that matters most. 

Matthew 6:31 -34

Therefore, take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? ….. But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you. Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself.

For Christians, Good Friday commemorates Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross of Calvary.

For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life (John 3:16)

It is about God’s love that is unconditional as demonstrated in Romans 5:18 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died, for us.

Christ’ death is not the end of all, but a beginning of a relationship with God because Christ was resurrected on the 3rd day (which in common day term is also known as Easter Sunday). What a blessing to be God’s child and a victorious life that we can lead because Jesus has conquered death!

O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ (1 Cor 15: 55, 57)
